Water level 239.0 ft, stable 0.0 ft/day; 3.6 ft above rule curve Monday. For water level information, call (662)563-4571 or check at http://126.96.36.199/offices/ed/edh/docs/bullet.txt for a table or http://ftp.mvk.usace.army.mil/offices/ed/edh/graphs1.htm for a graph. The lake should rise from 235 ft March 1 to summer pool (250 ft) by May 1.
Expect a warm-up this week. Best luck will likely be for crappie fishing 6 ft to 8 ft deep, slow-trolling in the main lake or jigging over submerged brush with jigs and/or minnows. Few crappie are being caught jigging in shallow water. A few catfish could be taken fishing natural baits on the bottom. White bass in the 2 lb range are biting in the river above Lake. Cast jigs or small crankbaits over sand bottom out of the main current (pockets, back side of sand bars, etc.). Historically, crappie spawning runs from about the last week of March until the first week of May, peaking the second week in April. It varies year to year with temperatures, rainfall, water levels, etc.
The spillway had 1 gate open 2.0 ft each (600 cfs) Monday. Best luck down here will be for crappie on jigs and/or minnows or for catfish on natural baits. Action lately has been relatively slow due to cold water temperatures.
Contact the COE office (662)563-4571 for accessible ramps at current water levels.
The daily limit for black bass (largemouth and spotted) is 7 fish, any size.
The daily creel limit for crappie on Enid Lake is 20 per person. Crappie must be over 12 inches. Anglers fishing Enid Lake may use no more than 5 poles per person and no more than 2 hooks or lures per pole. There is a 50 crappie per boat limit for boats with 3 or more anglers. The 12 inch length limit does not apply to the reservoir spillway, but the spillway has a 20 crappie creel limit.
